ANN ARBOR – Entrepreneur Monica Wheat, entrepreneur and investor, discusses her selection to the inaugural Visionary Voices speakers bureau, to amplify female and non-binary voices nationwide.

Women and non-binary individuals are significantly underrepresented in conversations about tech and venture capital — both at conferences and in media coverage. This perpetuates a cycle where they don’t have the same access as men to opportunities and networks to build social and financial capital. It shouldn’t be this Visionary Voices says on its website.
